Jets eliminated but Bryce Petty will start next week vs. Chargers, NorthJersey, Todd Bowles isn't going to use the final two games to evaluate second-year quarterback Christian Hackenberg.

How did Bryce Petty look in Jets' loss to Saints? NJdotcom, Bryce Petty got his first start of the season in the Jets' loss to the Saints on Sunday. How did he look? Here's the report card.

Jets' Bryce Petty: Throws touchdown in loss, CBS Sports, Petty completed 19 of 39 passes for 179 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 31-19 loss to the Saints. He also rushed twice for 16 yards.

The Baylor product completed just half of his 14 pass attempts in the first half for a mere 46 yards, and the touchdown came late in fourth quarter with the Saints playing back to protect a two-score lead. The second-year pro's line wasn't as bad as it looks, however, as the first interception came off of a deflection, and the second was a Hail Mary on the final play of the game. He will have an even tougher test in Week 16 at home against the Chargers.
